Dear Sherry Kevin and Cameron, We are so sorry for your loss, Nate was like a son to us. When the kids were growing up, we spent so many memorable, fun times with him. He was always very respectful, funny and had a HUGE heart and was part of our family. We'll never forget the way he made us laugh. He will live in our hearts forever, our memories and through music. We have such fond memories of Nate, our hearts are aching and sad. "Nater We Love You and We Miss You. The comfort we have is that you are in Gods arms. We'll miss your smile. We love your Nater". Rest In Peace our dear friend! With Deepest Sympathy, Love, Larry and Martha (Marty) Chavez
Kevin and family- My deepest condolences for your loss. The few times I was around Nate at work, he made me smile. His smile was infectious.

My deepest condolences. The non-profit organization you have chosen to fund in Nate's memory, Families Of Homicide Victims And Missing Persons (FOHVAMP), is a tremendous resource. I did not know Nate, but I feel deeply for him and his loved ones, so I will make a donation in his name. I am so sorry this happened. I hope someday you are able to think of Nate and smile instead of cry.
Kevin, Sherry, Cameron and family – I know the death of Nate has been an extremely trying time for you, the world will not be the same without his presence. I hope it will be the little things, the small, everyday occurrences that you’ll remember. The laughs, the stories, the smiles. I pray it is these very memories that will help push the pain away and bring back your smiles. May God bless you and give you strength and endurance during this time and may Nate’s soul rest in peace. Love, Karen, Dennis and Matt
Sherry, We have been praying for your family and will continue to do so. My sympathies are extended to all and know that we are here for you if you should need anything. Dolores and Roy Schoonover
